Guardiola: Manchester City fires me if I don't eliminate Real Madrid
Pep Guardiola thinks Manchester City will fire him if he fails to eliminate Real Madrid in the 1/8 of Champions League.
City will face Real in the 16th best stage of the European elite club competition, at a time when they are struggling to maintain good form while Zinedine Zidane’s team are La Liga leader.
“I want to win the Champions League,” Guardiola told Sky Sports, while arguing that if he fails to win the race does not necessarily mean that it will be a failed season for his team.
“I dream about it and I am excited to prepare for the match against Real Madrid. This process and these two weeks until match time will be the happiest weeks of my life, ”he added.
“If we do not beat Real, then the president or the sporting director will come and say to me, ‘this is not enough, we want to win the Champions League, we will dismiss you,'” he said.
